Well, i guess im the only one who will cut slack to a FIRST YEAR HEAD COACH. We are going to the playoffs for gods sake. We were dismal last year, coming off a SB win with a 15 year Head coach. But Tomlin is supposed to be like Noll circa 1978?

Doubtful - are you saying he should not have been hired?

Preseason this team was regarded as a 9-7 team by most - winning the division is no minor accomplishment even with the collapse of the Ravens and Bengals

Other than hiring Arians as OC what has Tomlin done that distresses you as clearly wrong?

I even saw him yelling at his players a few times.

I liked it!!! Fire! Enthusiasm!!
I saw that, too - he was stirred up

Hell No. I can name you rookie head coaches/ rookie and resigned head coaches that would have loved to be in Tomlin's Shoes

Who wants to bet if that were Ben out there we might've pulled this out?

Oh well, that's our regular season. 10-6 and that's not bad. Even if the Steelers did win, it wouldn't matter. We'd still have to play Jacksonville. San Diego won.

The Defense...what happened to it?

Would the win be worth it if ben got hurt?

No I'm not saying he shouldn't have been hired and I'm not trying to disrespect him. I know we are in the playoffs and that we won the division. I just feel that he makes bad play calls more often then not and I really dislike the lack of emotion. But I do respect him for helping to turn the team around, I just feel that if he were coaching anywhere else he would not be in this position. Our players are the reason we have gotten this far.

Yes if Ben was out there we might have won but I'd rather him be healthy for next weeks playoff game. But don't knock Batch, I think he did very well for this being his first start of the year.

I do not think a coach can will a team to victory but for whatever reason the team has not been ready to go
you have to admit the 04 and 05 seasons were built upon, and won on, emotion and bravado.

that is clearly not the tomlin way.

"business as usual" and "coming out and playing our game" simply isnt working in these instances.
